Absorption Rate in Providence High School Zone
The "absorption rate" is a key piece of data in helping us understand the real estate market. The absorption rate tells us how long it will take to sell all of the existing homes on the market, assuming no new homes are listed. A balanced market between buyers and sellers is 6 months. In the Providence High School real estate market, we are seeing a current 3-month absorption rate of 7.9 months, meaning it's currently a buyer's market. However, the 6 month absorption rate was 6 months, and the 12-month absorption rate was 5.6 months! I think the current higher absorption rate is due to the fact that we have just come through the holidays and the slowest market time of the year. Get ready for a roller coaster ride this spring!
